Connective tissue cells of an organ found in the loose connective tissue. These are most often associated with the uterine mucosa and the ovary as well as the hematopoietic system and elsewhere.
The level of protein structure in which combinations of secondary protein structures (alpha helices, beta sheets, loop regions, and motifs) pack together to form folded shapes called domains. Disulfide bridges between cysteines in two different parts of the polypeptide chain along with other interactions between the chains play a role in the formation and stabilization of tertiary structure. Small proteins usually consist of only one domain but larger proteins may contain a number of domains connected by segments of polypeptide chain which lack regular secondary structure.

Ectopic bone morphogenetic proteins 5 and 4 in the chicken forebrain lead to cyclopia and holoprosencephaly. (1/42)

Proper dorsal-ventral patterning in the developing central nervous system requires signals from both the dorsal and ventral portions of the neural tube. Data from multiple studies have demonstrated that bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) and Sonic hedgehog protein are secreted factors that regulate dorsal and ventral specification, respectively, within the caudal neural tube. In the developing rostral central nervous system Sonic hedgehog protein also participates in ventral regionalization; however, the roles of BMPs in the developing brain are less clear. We hypothesized that BMPs also play a role in dorsal specification of the vertebrate forebrain. To test our hypothesis we implanted beads soaked in recombinant BMP5 or BMP4 into the neural tube of the chicken forebrain. Experimental embryos showed a loss of the basal telencephalon that resulted in holoprosencephaly (a single cerebral hemisphere), cyclopia (a single midline eye), and loss of ventral midline structures. In situ hybridization using a panel of probes to genes expressed in the dorsal and ventral forebrain revealed the loss of ventral markers with the maintenance of dorsal markers. Furthermore, we found that the loss of the basal telencephalon was the result of excessive cell death and not a change in cell fates. These data provide evidence that BMP signaling participates in dorsal-ventral patterning of the developing brain in vivo, and disturbances in dorsal-ventral signaling result in specific malformations of the forebrain.  (+info)

Early embryonic lethality in Bmp5;Bmp7 double mutant mice suggests functional redundancy within the 60A subgroup. (2/42)

Members of the BMP family of signaling molecules display a high conservation of structure and function, and multiple BMPs are often coexpressed in a variety of tissues during development. Moreover, distinct BMP ligands are capable of activating common pathways. Here we describe the coexpression of two members of the 60A subfamily of BMPs, Bmp5 and Bmp7, at a number of different sites in the embryo from gastrulation onwards. Previous studies demonstrate that loss of either Bmp5 or Bmp7 has negligible effects on development, suggesting these molecules functionally compensate for each other at early stages of embryonic development. Here we show this is indeed the case. Thus we find that Bmp5;Bmp7 double mutants die at 10.5 dpc and display striking defects primarily affecting the tissues where these factors are coexpressed. The present analysis also uncovers novel roles for BMP signaling during the development of the allantois, heart, branchial arches, somites and forebrain. Bmp5 and Bmp7 do not appear to be involved in establishing pattern in these tissues, but are instead necessary for the proliferation and maintenance of specific cell populations. These findings are discussed with respect to potential mechanisms underlying cooperative signaling by multiple members of the TGF-beta superfamily.  (+info)

Molecular characterization and phylogenetic analysis of SpBMP5-7, a new member of the TGF-beta superfamily expressed in sea urchin embryos. (3/42)

TGF-beta ligands are probably pan-bilaterian in phylogenetic distribution. The family appears to have diversified greatly with the evolution of the vertebrates, but only a few invertebrate deuterostome TGF-beta molecules have so far been isolated. A search for members of this family expressed in sea urchin embryos, using canonical PCR primers, revealed a single-copy gene encoding a new TGF-beta protein. The sequence which it encodes is closely related to those of vertebrate bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) 5-7. No additional TGF-beta family members were uncovered other than univin, which had previously been reported.  (+info)

Efficient studies of long-distance Bmp5 gene regulation using bacterial artificial chromosomes. (4/42)

The regulatory regions surrounding many genes may be large and difficult to study using standard transgenic approaches. Here we describe the use of bacterial artificial chromosome clones to rapidly survey hundreds of kilobases of DNA for potential regulatory sequences surrounding the mouse bone morphogenetic protein-5 (Bmp5) gene. Simple coinjection of large insert clones with lacZ reporter constructs recapitulates all of the sites of expression observed previously with numerous small constructs covering a large, complex regulatory region. The coinjection approach has made it possible to rapidly survey other regions of the Bmp5 gene for potential control elements, to confirm the location of several elements predicted from previous expression studies using regulatory mutations at the Bmp5 locus, to test whether Bmp5 control regions act similarly on endogenous and foreign promoters, and to show that Bmp5 control elements are capable of rescuing phenotypic effects of a Bmp5 deficiency. This rapid approach has identified new Bmp5 control regions responsible for controlling the development of specific anatomical structures in the vertebrate skeleton. A similar approach may be useful for studying complex control regions surrounding many other genes important in embryonic development and human disease.  (+info)

Bone morphogenetic protein-5 (BMP-5) promotes dendritic growth in cultured sympathetic neurons. (5/42)

BACKGROUND: BMP-5 is expressed in the nervous system throughout development and into adulthood. However its effects on neural tissues are not well defined. BMP-5 is a member of the 60A subgroup of BMPs, other members of which have been shown to stimulate dendritic growth in central and peripheral neurons. We therefore examined the possibility that BMP-5 similarly enhances dendritic growth in cultured sympathetic neurons. RESULTS: Sympathetic neurons cultured in the absence of serum or glial cells do not form dendrites; however, addition of BMP-5 causes these neurons to extend multiple dendritic processes, which is preceded by an increase in phosphorylation of the Smad-1 transcription factor. The dendrite-promoting activity of BMP-5 is significantly inhibited by the BMP antagonists noggin and follistatin and by a BMPR-IA-Fc chimeric protein. RT-PCR and immunocytochemical analyses indicate that BMP-5 mRNA and protein are expressed in the superior cervical ganglia (SCG) during times of initial growth and rapid expansion of the dendritic arbor. CONCLUSIONS: These data suggest a role for BMP-5 in regulating dendritic growth in sympathetic neurons. The signaling pathway that mediates the dendrite-promoting activity of BMP-5 may involve binding to BMPR-IA and activation of Smad-1, and relative levels of BMP antagonists such as noggin and follistatin may modulate BMP-5 signaling. Since BMP-5 is expressed at relatively high levels not only in the developing but also the adult nervous system, these findings suggest the possibility that BMP-5 regulates dendritic morphology not only in the developing, but also the adult nervous system.  (+info)

Expression of bone morphogenetic protein-5 gene during chick heart development: possible roles in valvuloseptal endocardial cushion formation. (6/42)

The bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) family, comprising multifunctional peptide growth factors, regulates many developmental processes in a variety of tissues. We examined the spatiotemporal expression of BMP5 by in situ hybridization in chick embryonic hearts from stages 5 to 33. The BMP5 gene was first expressed in the endoderm underlying the precardiac mesoderm at stages 5 to 8. Thereafter, BMP5 expression was restricted to the myocardium of the atrioventricular (AV) canal and outflow tract (OT) regions, where the valvuloseptal endocardial cushion tissue is induced. These results suggest that BMP5 may play important roles not only in myocardial differentiation, but also in the formation and maintenance of endocardial cushion tissue.  (+info)

Bone morphogenetic proteins promote cartilage differentiation and protect engineered artificial cartilage from fibroblast invasion and destruction. (7/42)

OBJECTIVE: An important role in joint and cartilage homeostasis in adults has been demonstrated recently for morphogenetic factors of the transforming growth factor beta family. Therefore, this study was undertaken to investigate the potential of bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) in chondrocyte differentiation using current technologies of tissue engineering. METHODS: Complementary DNAs of recombinant human BMPs 2, 4, 5, 6, and 7 were transfected into primary bovine articular chondrocytes. Transgenic chondrocytes were assembled 3-dimensionally in alginate or in bioresorbable co-polymer fleeces of vicryl and polydioxanon embedded in low-melting-point agarose. Redifferentiation and formation of cartilage tissue in vitro or after subcutaneous transplantation into nude mice were assayed by semiquantitative reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction, histology, and in situ hybridization, and findings were compared with those in unmodified or control-transfected primary chondrocytes. RESULTS: Compared with other BMPs and control vector, BMP-7 induced a decrease in type I collagen expression in artificial cartilage, while transcription of the cartilage-specific type II collagen remained stable. In transplantation experiments, BMP-7 transgenic cartilage revealed the greatest amount of matrix synthesis, and BMP-7 was the only morphogen to suppress the infiltrative response of mouse fibroblastic cells into engineered cartilage, thereby preventing transplant destruction. CONCLUSION: Cartilage differentiation and matrix maturation are promoted by BMPs in cartilage engineering. The inhibitory effect of BMP-7 on a nonspecific infiltrative response in immunocompromised nude mice further suggests that individual morphogens not only may contribute to cartilage maturation, but also may protect it from nonspecific inflammation and invasive destruction. These properties advance BMPs as promising tools for engineering of cartilaginous joint bioprostheses and as candidate biologic agents or genes for cartilage stabilization in arthritis.  (+info)

The specification of noradrenergic locus coeruleus (LC) neurones depends on bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs). (8/42)

The role of BMPs in the development of the major noradrenergic centre of the brain, the locus coeruleus (LC), was investigated. LC generation is reflected by initial expression of the transcription factors Phox2a and Phox2b in dorsal rhombomere1 (r1), followed by expression of dopamine-beta-hydroxylase and tyrosine hydroxylase. Bmp5 is expressed in the dorsal neuroepithelium in proximity to Phox2-expressing cells. BMP inhibition in stage 10 chick embryos resulted in the lack of LC neurones or in their generation at the dorsal midline, and loss of roof plate and rhombic lip, but it did not affect neural crest development. These results reveal late essential BMP functions in the specification of dorsal neuronal phenotypes in r1, including LC neurones, and in the development of dorsal midline structures.  (+info)

  • BMP can be used to aid bone grafting for dental implants . (
  • Should BMP be used in all bone-grafting cases? (
  • What is Bone Grafting? (
  • With bone grafting, we now have the opportunity to not only replace bone where it is missing, but also the ability to promote new bone growth in that location! (
  • Both allogenic and xenogenic bone grafting are advantageous in that they do not require a second procedure to harvest your own bone, as with autografts. (
  • Each bone grafting option has its own risks and benefits. (
  • We can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries and TMJ disorders, and perform a full range of dental implant and bone grafting procedures. (
  • In many cases, we can use allograft material to implement bone grafting for dental implants. (
  • A sinus lift is one of the most common bone grafting procedures for patients with bone loss in the upper jaw. (
  • The underlying space is filled with bone grafting material , either from your own body or from a other sources. (
  • Bone grafting can repair implant sites with inadequate bone structure due to previous extractions, gum disease or injuries. (
  • 5 out of 5 stars based on 2 Bone Grafting reviews. (
  • He did bone grafting for me and corrected a problem I had with a recurring cyst that another dentist couldn't seem to heal prior to fitting me with a bottom partial. (
  • Reduced need for bone grafting. (
  • The special tilting of two of the implants ensures a secure and stable anchorage for the replaced arch, typically making bone grafting unnecessary. (
  • While Drs. Burke, Pugao, Fürchtgott, Brockhoff and Yates perform the actual implant surgery, initial tooth extractions , and bone grafting if necessary, the restorative dentist (your dentist) fits and makes the permanent prosthesis. (
  • Inpatient hospital implant surgery is for patients who have special medical or anesthetic needs or for those who need extensive bone grafting from the jaw, hip, or tibia. (
  • Dr. Boyden performs the actual implant surgery, initial tooth extractions, and bone grafting if necessary. (
  • Jawbone loss and deterioration could lead to needing a bone grafting procedure to correct the issue. (
  • The best way to reduce bone loss and prevent deterioration is to undergo a bone grafting procedure in order to promote new bone growth and restore the traumatized area. (
  • We therefore examined the possibility that BMP-5 similarly enhances dendritic growth in cultured sympathetic neurons. (
  • RT-PCR and immunocytochemical analyses indicate that BMP-5 mRNA and protein are expressed in the superior cervical ganglia (SCG) during times of initial growth and rapid expansion of the dendritic arbor. (
  • Conclusions: These data suggest a role for BMP-5 in regulating dendritic growth in sympathetic neurons. (

(
  • BACKGROUND: Most patients with familial primary pulmonary hypertension have defects in the gene for bone morphogenetic protein receptor II (BMPR2), a member of the transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta) superfamily of receptors. (
  • Autogenous bone grafts are advantageous in that the graft material is live bone, meaning it contains living cellular elements that enhance bone growth. (
  • This product is processed allograft bone, containing collagen, proteins, and growth factors that are extracted from the allograft bone. (
  • Graft composites consist of other bone graft materials and growth factors to achieve the benefits of a variety of substances. (
  • Some combinations may include: collagen/ceramic composite, which closely resembles the composition of natural bone, DBM combined with bone marrow cells, which aid in the growth of new bone, or a collagen/ceramic/autograft composite. (
  • Extracellular matrix proteins play critical roles in controlling apatite nucleation/growth in collagenous tissues. (
  • This enables dental implants to be placed and secured in the new bone growth. (

  • The link between oestrogen and bone and joint health is well established and it's recognised that falling oestrogen levels result in poor bone regeneration which sets the scene for inflammation, joint pain and swelling. (
  • However, because these options lack autograft's bone-forming properties, bone regeneration may take longer than with autografts, with a less predictable outcome. (
  • Paracrines are the protein cytokines that are of interest in the regeneration of bone. (
  • A suitable carrier (material used to deliver the bone-inducing cytokine to the area where bone regeneration is needed) is critical to the success of bone regeneration. (
  • The regeneration of bone is brought about by a system of proteins (called cytokines) interacting to induce stem cells and other undifferentiated cells to form cells such as fibroblasts, blood vessels, and bone tissue itself. (
  • In addition, special membranes may be utilized that dissolve under the gum and protect the bone graft and encourage bone regeneration. (
  • This is called guided bone regeneration or guided tissue regeneration. (

  • This often leaves a condition in which there is poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for placement of dental implants . (
  • Dental implants need bone to hold them in place. (
  • When the sinus wall is very thin, it is impossible to place dental implants in this bone. (
  • After several months of healing, the bone becomes part of the patient's jaw and dental implants can be inserted and stabilized in the newly formed sinus bone. (
  • This often results in poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for the placement of dental implants as well as long term shifting of remaining teeth and changes to the facial structure. (
  • Implants also help preserve facial structure, preventing bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing. (
  • I have lost 70% of my bone around my tooth and I want dental implants. (
  • My dental implants have been in for 5 years and feel like natural teeth and look great. (
  • My 3 dental implants have been in over 5 years now and feel great. (
  • A UK-based SME offers its catalogue of recombinant proteins to companies and academia for research and development programmes. (
  • However, because of the high degree of homology between GDF11 and MSTN, their recombinant proteins share almost identical biochemical properties and, consequently, cannot be clearly differentiated, generating the possibility that the effects artificially mediated by recombinant GDF11 actually reproduce the endogenous functions of MSTN. (
  • Regenerative Medicine'', vol. 5, no. 4. (
  • however, addition of BMP-5 causes these neurons to extend multiple dendritic processes, which is preceded by an increase in phosphorylation of the Smad-1 transcription factor. (
  • The signaling pathway that mediates the dendrite-promoting activity of BMP-5 may involve binding to BMPR-IA and activation of Smad-1, and relative levels of BMP antagonists such as noggin and follistatin may modulate BMP-5 signaling. (
  • Similarly, Smad 1/5/8 is active (phosphorylated) in refractory follicles but not during late telogen. (

  • A previous Broad Clinical Fellow, R. Kiran Alluri, MD, genetically modified the stem cells to produce a protein, called bone morphogenetic protein, that serves as a signal to encourage the production of bone. (
  • As the sponge dissolves, the bone morphogenetic protein stimulates the cells to produce new bone. (
  • In the two largest families, we used microsatellite markers to test for linkage to genes encoding TGF-beta-receptor proteins, including endoglin and activin-receptor-like kinase 1 (ALK1), and BMPR2. (
  • Autogenous bone grafts, also known as autografts, are made from your own bone, taken from somewhere else in the body. (
  • Like allogenic grafts, xenogenic grafts serve as a framework for bone from the surrounding area to grow and fill the void. (
  • As stated earlier, there are several areas of the body that are suitable for attaining bone grafts. (
  • In the maxillofacial region bone grafts can be taken from inside the mouth, in the area of the chin or third molar region, or in the upper jaw behind the last tooth. (
  • Sinus bone grafts are also performed to replace bone in the posterior upper jaw. (
  • Major bone grafts are typically performed to repair defects of the jaws. (
  • Additional research into the signaling pathway would yield a clue for fastening the uptake of graft and rapid deposition of the new bone. (
  • Like the majority of MSTN antagonists, which bind and inhibit Linifanib inhibitor database GDF11 because of its homology to MSTN also, FST binds and inhibits both MSTN (5) and GDF11 Linifanib inhibitor database (21). (

  • Bone morphogenic protein is an isolated protein that induces specific cells in our body to form new cartilage and bone . (
  • As the sponge dissolves, the bone morphogenic protein is released, stimulating the cells to produce new bone. (
  • Pi handling by osteogenic cells is important for bone mineralization. (
  • Inorganic phosphate (Pi) is a fundamental constituent of hydroxyapatite, and its transport by osteogenic cells is an important function for primary calcification of the bone matrix. (
  • In MC3T3-E1 cells, this effect is mediated by the JNK pathway and plays an essential role in bone matrix calcification induced by BMP-2. (
  • Mitogenic paracrines induce stems cells to become osteoblasts and form bone. (
  • Biomaterials help in repairing the structural integrity of the damaged bones and joints. (
  • The biomaterials are implanted to perform the role of pre-existing damaged tissues such as bones, ligaments and tendons. (
  • The longer you are missing the tooth, the more the bone will disintegrate, making the implant process more difficult. (
  • If you are missing quite a lot of bone, it might be difficult to place an implant without infringing on the nerve space. (
  • The replacement teeth are usually attached to the implant when adequate healing has occurred and your jaw bone is firmly fused to the implant. (
  • If enough bone between the upper jaw ridge and the bottom of the sinus is available to sufficiently stabilize the implant, sinus augmentations and implant placement can sometimes be performed as a single procedure. (
  • The newly formed bone in the socket also provides a foundation for an implant to replace the tooth. (
  • To obtain good bone-implant interfaces, many modification methods have been developed to enable PEEK and PEEK-based composites from bioinert to bioactive. (
  • This review article will focus on different physical and chemical modification ns of PEEK, which have been used to improve the bone-implant interface. (
  • When you are comfortable, the surgeon makes a small incision in the gum tissue to reveal the bone, creates space using special instruments, and gently inserts the titanium implant. (
  • When infection or other problems with the bone are present, immediate implant placement is not the best treatment. (
  • Periodontal disease is an infection that wears down tissues such as alveolar bone, periodontal ligaments, cementum, or gingiva. (
  • It can also assist in repair of bone defects created by removal of teeth, or small cysts and repair of fistulas between the sinus cavity and mouth. (
  • The roots of your teeth keep the jawbone stimulated to maintain the bone mass. (
  • The remaining impacted eye teeth are found in the middle of the supporting bone, but are stuck in an elevated position above the roots of the adjacent teeth, or are out to the facial side of the dental arch. (
  • When these upper teeth are removed there is often just a thin wall of bone separating the maxillary sinus and the mouth. (
  • The procedure seeks to grow bone in the floor of the maxillary sinus above the bony ridge of the gum line that anchors the teeth in the upper jaw. (
  • Removal of teeth is sometimes necessary because of pain, infection, bone loss , or due to a fracture in the tooth. (
  • In addition, when teeth are extracted the surrounding bone and gums can shrink and recede very quickly, resulting in unsightly defects and a collapse of the lips and cheeks. (
  • The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth . (
  • The supporting gum tissue and bone surrounding your teeth begin to deteriorate, often leading to loss of teeth or loosening of teeth. (
  • Some teeth that are affected by trauma may not experience bone loss until many years later. (
  • The misalignment can cause your teeth to not have the necessary structure or support needed to properly stimulate or protect the underlying bone, leading to deterioration. (
  • Synthetic materials also have the advantage of not requiring a second procedure to harvest bone, reducing risk and pain. (
  • Mutations in an evolutionarily conserved processing site in bone morphogenetic proteins are associated with developmental disorders. (
  • For all practical purpose, use of autogenous bone graft is still considered to be the "clinical, economical and practical" gold standard for the reconstruction of cranio-maxillofacial skeletal defects. (
  • Unlike autogenous bone, allogenic bone cannot produce new bone on it's own. (
  • Bone X-raysMRIs, and people who have Russland Wm Spielorte previously bones to become weak or for injuries, bone lesions, and. (
  • In one common method, the tooth is removed and the socket is filled with bone or bone substitute . (
  • The innate immune protein calprotectin promotes Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus interaction. (
  • Living without a tooth can eventually change how you look, especially if you suffer from bone deterioration. (
  • The bone that holds the tooth in place (the socket) is often damaged by disease and/or infection, resulting in a deformity of the jaw after the tooth is extracted. (
  • If a tooth needs to be extracted , the underlying bone might be left sharp and uneven. (
  • If your tooth has been missing for some time, the adjacent support bone is likely to grow thinner and shrink. (
  • This occurs because the root of the natural tooth has to be present to stimulate the bone. (
  • When a tooth is knocked out or severely damaged, it causes the stimulation of the bone to stop, which in turn will result in bone loss in the jawbone. (
